Selwyn Snow Resort to be Transformed Into a Winter Wonderland
- All Ages
Snow lovers and adventurers will sadly need to wait another year for this amazing experince. Rapid snowfall has delayed Selwyn Snow Resort's reopening - which has now been moved back from 2022 to July, 2023. Changes have been made to the dates below to reflect this update.
The team have shared this statment on their social media: "We’re deeply saddened that we find ourselves in this situation. Due to unprecedented early snowfalls the Selwyn re-build will not be complete by 2nd July. It’s difficult to be here after the hurdles we have faced over the last few years, and we want to thank our guests and the public for your ongoing support. All guests who have purchased products from Selwyn Snow Resort will be refunded in full."
Closed since the 2020 bushfires and nestled in the picturesque Snowy Mountains region of New South Wales, Selwyn Snow Resort has secured unprecedented investment to radically improve the resort and transform it into a winter wonderland, intending to reaffirm its place as an icon of the Australian snow scene.
If you've been itching to revisit your favourite Snowy Mountains snow resort, we're happy to report that the brand-new Selwyn Snow Resort will be reopening for the 2023 season!
The All-New Selwyn Snow Resort 2023
Come July 2022, Selwyn Snow Resort will have undergone an extensive upgrade, and be the proud home to brand-new guest facilities, state-of-the-art snowmaking capabilities, upgraded lifts and a range of exciting new things to see and do for visitors.
The Blyton Group—the venue owner—and the NSW Government have agreed to a new 40-year lease, which means the resort is here to stay!
A Mega Upgrade
So, let’s get down to the really good stuff. What can we expect? What key features of the redevelopment will really draw us in?
Well, there will be plenty of things to delight the grown-ups—we’re talking about a new toboggan park, an upgraded chairlift, two new snow carpets and the brand-new Selwyn Centre, which will be a one-stop-shop for all guest facilities, accommodation and services. And while we’re here, we may as well mention that there will be all-new food and drink venues, new hire facilities, seating and (music to parents’ ears!), a Kids Club. Hallelujah!
A Winter Wonderland
The very best part of the Selwyn Snow Resort upgrades - the icing on top of the cake if you will - has to be the plans to build a kid-focused Winter Wonderland at the new Selwyn Snow Resort.
This celebration of all-things winter will include a skating rink that can double as a bumper car arena, a miniature enchanted village that brims with alpine charm, as well as a tubing carousel for the under 5s and kid snowmobiles for the 5-13-year-olds - wow!
There will also be the chance for visiting families to take snowshoe walking tours of Kosciuszko National Park; the family-friendly nature of the resort being something that Blyton Group Chairman, Kevin James Blyton, has listed as an important feature of the redevelopment. He said, “Selwyn Snow Resort has been the place for thousands of families to learn to ski or snowboard over the years and I’m very pleased that this will continue for generations to come.” Hear hear!
